Hi , I found a box of 20 in an old green box at an estate sale. Any idea of any value?

Dennis,  I have held off hoping someone with more cartridge collecting interests would weigh in.  Failiing that, I will say there is no way to come up with any valuable estimation without knowing a WHOLE lot more info!  Pictures that are clear and detailed of the five main sides would greatly help as well.  The manufacturer is key, whether a Winchester box, Remington box, US Cartridge Company, etc.  Then there is the likely scenario where the contents do not match the box!  The condition and originality of the contents are very important.  Bottom line, there really is no meat in your question to be able to answer you at this time.  Tim

And we think ourselves in the firearms collecting community to be an eccentric bunch.

Except for the Billy photo, which has valid historical significance, pure GARBAGE, like all “modern” art.
